CreepyPastaKitty Apart from hanging out with friends and watching TV etc, my hobbies are: taekwondo, watching documentaries and experiencing new things. We sometimes go to a museum but I also have a lot of fun when we go shopping. That is something I do with my mother and sister. I like going for walks in the country, especially near my home village. My father and brothers also go horse riding. I play Pokemon, especially when I’m up for a challenge.

HOW TO study vocabulary and grammar

LEARNING FROM CONTEXT Word fields

Understand the definition Look up unfamiliar words: make sure you understand the definitions of all your new words.

pl

Look for examples: do a simple online search and you will see the word in many different examples or contexts.

aa

Make a word list, a word web, an image list ...

r

Group words together that belong to the same word field: e.g. outdoor hobbies vs indoor hobbies

m

LEARNING FROM REPETITION

ex e

Write individual words down or use the words in your own sentences.

Use flash cards. They are an easy way to review your vocabulary and to separate words into different categories.

Read through your list or look through your word webs. Cover up one half and go through the other half.

ki

Seventh grade can be overwhelming for a lot of kids. It was for me, and still is. You know the feeling you get when you’re dreading going to your next class? You know when your stomach clenches into a little ball? Well, you won’t get that feeling going into Mrs. Trumbo’s classroom. Mrs. Trumbo doesn’t make her classroom feel like an old school classroom. You’ll want to run to Mrs. Trumbo’s classroom. That’s how fun and exciting she is. She is organized but at the same time she isn’t, and that’s what I like about her classroom. Mrs. Trumbo teaches reading and maths at South Junior High. She keeps the classroom alert and active. She lays down the law, but at the same time I can see she loves what she does for a living. I can relate to Mrs. Trumbo very well, which makes it a lot easier for me to learn in her classroom. When I look at Mrs. Trumbo I see a lot of actions and stuff I would do as a person. For example, she wears some interesting outfits. One day she will wear a big pendant on her neck with a shirt and matching pants. Another day she will wear just plain shorts and a patterned shirt with tennis shoes. I really liked one of her outfits when she wore a brown skirt down to her knees, with a wavy shirt and a decorative belt. I can really say she knows style. For a teacher that is pretty uncommon! Every day I look forward to seeing what she wears the next day, so I can get some new ideas for myself. The first day of school, I just knew Mrs. Trumbo was a magnificent teacher. I’m generally a lazy person, but what kid isn’t? The first week of school I was losing my grip on things. Mrs. Trumbo was the only teacher that didn’t let me. She gave me the impression that she can be really fun, but when it comes down to it she wants stuff to be done. Correctly and properly, that is. Mrs. Trumbo is teaching me a lot and I love being in her class. I’m sure other kids do too. She should win because she brings joy to South Junior High, and makes life interesting. She’s a great lady and deserves this award. There is so much more to Mrs. Trumbo, but there isn’t enough time in this world for me to say everything!

Did you know? Verbs in English • The base form is the form of the verb that you see in the dictionary. It is the form from which all other parts of a regular verb are made. e.g. be, like, play

r

• The infinitive is the verb with the word ‘to’ in front of it. e.g. to be, to like, to play

Discuss the hobbies that people you know have. Use the activities in exercise 2 as inspiration. SPOKEN INTERACTION Follow the example. e.g. I like jogging. My best friend likes cooking. I think my teacher likes reading.

• Verbs also have -ing forms in English, like in exercise 2, e.g. being, playing, reading. This can make the verbs into nouns (= zelfstandig naamwoord) or adjectives (= bijvoeglijk naamwoord). If we use a verb as a subject or object in a sentence, we often use the -ing form. e.g. Sleeping is my number 1 hobby. I like reading.

What are Some Hobbies that Teens are Interested in? BY CHERYL STEPHENSON-HEARNS

Music Teens can enjoy music as a hobby in a number of ways. They can relax by listening to music or they can benefit intellectually by learning how to play an instrument. Teens can show their musical talents in school or community bands and choirs. If the teen is tech-savvy, computer programs allow users to create music recordings and mixes.

r

Hobbies have many mental and physical health benefits, including more optimism, higher creativity and a better ability to deal with stress. Sharing hobbies with others also keeps teens socially engaged with people who have similar interests. Teens can be interested in almost unlimited hobbies. Here are some possible hobbies.

1

Social causes Teens who want to make a difference in their communities can volunteer in hospitals, animal shelters, libraries and museums. Teens also have the option of taking part in ‘voluntours’, planned trips to exotic locations where they can view the sites while volunteering, for example, to teach English or to build homes and schools.

jk

20

The arts Some teens enjoy unwinding with a good book. The fantasy genre has become very popular in recent years. Other teens prefer to express themselves through creative art, spending time drawing, painting or sculpting. And what do you think about making jewellery or doing scrapbooking, or car modelling, cooking and baking? For those teens with a dramatic flair, there are often opportunities to act, sing or dance in theatre productions.

Sports Teens have many choices when it comes to activities. Indoor activities include gym memberships, yoga and dance classes. Outdoor activities range from skiing and snowboarding in winter to sailing and skateboarding in summer. Teens can also choose to participate in traditional team sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball and hockey. For non-traditionalists, they can join an ultimate frisbee or paintball team.

ki

25

to be tech-savvy: knowing a lot about modern technology, especially computers to benefit: to be helped by someone an opportunity: a chance to unwind: to relax

In

Technology The technology available to teens gives them unlimited options for hobbies. Teens can create and maintain a blog or a vlog on a topic that interests them. They can also play video games, use social networking sites and even build robots and write programs to make them run. The Internet provides a world of opportunities for teens without even leaving their bedrooms.

Ashley always has a busy schedule. Every weekday she gets up at 6:00 a.m. and feeds her cat. She always carries the cat downstairs and lets it out. Then she takes a shower and gets dressed. She has breakfast at 6:45 a.m. She loves cornflakes. She always fills an extra large bowl and adds some cold milk. After breakfast, she goes to the bathroom and brushes her teeth, dries and checks her hair again and again and again … , puts on some make-up and adds the finishing touch, perfume. Jamal hates it when she does that. She always uses too much! At 7:30 a.m. she leaves home to take the bus to school. The trip takes thirty minutes. At the bus stop she meets up with her best friends and then they have to walk for another five minutes. School starts at 8:30 a.m. Ashley isn’t that fond of school, but she doesn’t hate it either. At least her friends are there with her. School ends at 3:30 p.m. She takes the bus and arrives home at 4:20 p.m. That’s when the fun starts. Every Monday she goes dancing. Every Tuesday she goes horse riding, and on Wednesdays she plays tennis and has another dance class. Thursday is a day with nothing to do but to take extra good care of her cat. And on Fridays she gets together with some friends and talks about everything, especially boys. Most of the time she has dinner around 7:00 p.m., then she does homework, watches some TV and goes to bed at 10:00 p.m. On Saturdays she often has a competition with her dance crew; she wants to become a professional dancer. If there isn’t a competition, she goes out in the evening. Sunday is a quiet day. She just relaxes, does some work for school, plays with her cat and checks her social network sites.

In

Making games for a living is often seen as a dream job and, in my experience, it’s that and more! For the past 5+ years, I have been designing and developing video games from my home in Brisbane, Australia. This is my day as a professional game developer.

97


6:00 a.m. That’s more like it – 6:00 a.m. – I’m awake! The sun is rising over the city, and I always take a moment to appreciate the amazing view from my high-rise apartment. I’m much more productive when I start my workday early. I usually make a strong coffee then head straight to my desk to check my email.

7:00 a.m.

7:30 a.m.

aa

r

By now, I have answered my most important emails and can start thinking about how the rest of my day will look. Next, I skim news sites, forums, and answer questions from my 20,000+ social media followers.

8:00 a.m.

pl

After about 2 hours of light work, it’s time for breakfast. I usually have organic muesli, soy milk, fruit, and more coffee. I don’t like working when I eat, but I also don’t have space for a dining table in my apartment, so I often have breakfast at my desk.

9:00 a.m.

10:00 a.m.

m

Twice a week, I have an online meeting with my team at 9:00 a.m. During this meeting I get updates about our active projects, I test the latest games, and I give feedback. If it’s a day without a team meeting, I usually exercise or go for a walk around the city.

1:00 p.m.

ex e

This is when the real work starts. I’m fully awake and in my best mental state. Most of my work from now until 1:00 p.m. involves designing, coding, and testing new games. Time for lunch. I usually have a salad wrap and fries while catching up on a TV show. Sometimes, I finish my day here if I feel like I have been productive enough.

2:00 p.m.

I like to wind down in the afternoon with light work. This is when I do tasks like blogging, research, organization and planning.

jk

5:00 p.m.

I finish work at 5:00 p.m. if it’s a normal day. Sometimes I work late (7:00 p.m.) or very late (9:00 p.m.) if the work is interesting or I try to finish up a blog post.

ki

6:00 p.m.

From this point onwards, I just want to relax and avoid work for the rest of the night. I have dinner, watch TV or a good movie, and maybe play some Xbox with friends.

In

10:00 p.m.

Due to the difference in time zones, I often write emails or talk with clients/partners on Skype late into the evening. My evening is their morning.

10:30 p.m. Then … it’s time to get 8 hours of sleep and do it all again! So, that is a day in the life of a game developer. Thanks for reading!

How to make your own diary Do you and your schoolmates regularly forget to do your homework? When do your parents tell you to do your homework? Do you forget to prepare for tests? How do you plan your free time? Does your coach call your parents to say you are late again? Why does your brother forget dentist appointments? If you don’t have a diary, it’s a good idea to start organizing your life.

12 Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November, but many Americans take a day of vacation on the following Friday to make a four-day weekend, during which they often travel long distances to visit family and friends. The holiday dates back to 1621, the year after the Puritans arrived in Massachusetts. 13 St Andrew’s day is Scotland’s official national day. In 2006, the Scottish Parliament designated St Andrew’s Day as an official bank holiday. It is also a national holiday in Romania. In Scotland and many countries with Scottish connections, St Andrew’s Day is marked with a celebration of Scottish culture with traditional Scottish food, music and dance.

14 Boxing Day is the day after Christmas day. It is a bank holiday in the UK. There are a few theories as to why it’s called ‘Boxing Day’ but no one is completely sure: * In Britain ‘Christmas Box’ was a name for a Christmas present. Boxing Day was a day off for servants when they received a ‘Christmas Box’ from the master. * A box to collect money for the poor was placed in churches on Christmas day. The money was a bonfire: a large open-air fire used for burning distributed the next day. ‘Boxing Day’ could rubbish or as part of a celebration have been named after this custom. a pagan: a person holding religious beliefs other Today there are no traditional Boxing Day than those of the main world religions customs. Most people spend the day eating patriotic: loving your country the Christmas leftovers and maybe going for a a shamrock: a very small plant with 3 leaves walk or visiting friends and family.

In writing – We use capital letters for: days of the week and months of the year. e.g. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday e.g. January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December –  In British English, sometimes the last 2 letters (th, rd, st, nd) of the number as spoken are used in writing. e.g. Today is 4th June 2020.       It's on 1st June.

In

In speaking –  In American English, the exception to the 'month first' rule is the US day of independence. e.g. It's the fourth of July! – Years are usually divided into two parts; the first two digits and the last two digits. e.g. 1984: nineteen eighty-four, 2018: twenty eighteen –  For the years 2001 to 2010, the most common way of saying the year is two thousand and ‘number’. e.g. two thousand and eight – For the first years after 2010 you may hear two different alternatives: e.g. 2012: twenty twelve OR two thousand and twelve
